Nanotech: Think Small
Ryan Stuart

The powder is so fine that Burgess needs extremely high-powered microscopes and special equipment, labs and expertise just to see and work with it. Each speck is so small it is measured in nanometres: one-billionths of a metre. The material Mettech is working on is considered a nanopowder, and it’s...

Open Auto Group: Revved up
Ian MacNeill

I have to admit I’m a little nervous. It’s my first day on the sales floor at OpenRoad Toyota in the Richmond Auto Mall and I keep thinking of Jimmy Pattison, who used to keep the sales kernels popping in his car-dealership frying pan by firing the bottom sales person at the end of each month. I’m relieved to find the mood disarmingly relaxed.

Old Spaghetti Factory: That's Amore
Elizabeth Hoath

“Come on, it’s time to sing ‘Happy Birthday!’” calls Ryan Mountain over his shoulder, as he sweeps by with an impossibly full tray of dishes heaped with spumoni ice cream. He leads a troupe of young male servers to a table of giggling pre-teen girls.

Destiny Media: A Penny for your Stocks?
David Jordan

Entering the downtown head office of Destiny Media Technologies, it’s immediately obvious that the company has seen better times. The expansive lobby screams opulence, with its slate-tile floor, its floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking West Hastings Street 10 floors below, and the massive boardroom table visible through an aqua-tinted glass wall.

Victoria Tourism: No Tea Party
Peter Mitham

When the organizer of a major U.S. medical convention visited Victoria in February, the blooming crocuses and other signs of spring that characterize the city in the imaginations of winter-gripped Eastern Canadians were hardly in evidence. Instead, panhandlers and low-end...

Jessica Werb

And don’t think it happened purely by accident. In an age where radio and print seem outdated, here’s how experts create the kind of buzz that gets people talking – and spending. Live itForget billboards, TV ads and radio jingles. Last June, when Vancouver-based marketing agency Inventa promoted the relaunch of...

Aussie Rules: Melbourne
John Lee

Behind dozens of two-inch-thick doors, along a narrow passageway that’s likely cited in dictionaries under the word “dank,” stare the faces of villains such as crinolined Martha Needle. She finished her crocheting early one day, went suddenly off her middle-class rocker and poisoned most of her family. Luckily, these nutbar miscreants...

China-Canada Tourism: Slow Boat
Don Whiteley

Thousands of Chinese tourists would flock to our shores, they said. We'd be drowning in visitors, they said. One small question: where the hell are they? For decades, U.S. tourists have been the mainstay of B.C.'s tourism sector. But a...
